RE: Opera mail will not fetch inbox but will send emails in POP3
Well, Einstein says the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results, and as such, I predeclare that I'm insane. I had already set those port numbers and authentications on my server settings tab, but I retyped my password (just as I had several times before), and dutifully (i.e. insanely) tried it again. And whallah... It worked.
I can't imagine I had mistyped my password so often previously to keep it from working, but apart from that I don't know what's different about this time than the time before.
But for anyone else who comes across this thread from a search result, with similar issues, he are the settings that worked for me....
incoming server name: pop.secureserver.net
Port number: 995 Check Secure connection (TLS)
Authentication: Auto (Plaintext) -- although Plaintext should work just as well
Username: email@example.com (make sure it has the @-sign and the full domain name)
Outgoing server: smtpout.secureserver.net
Port number: 465 Check Secure connection (TLS)
Username: firstname.lastname@example.org (same username as for the incoming server)
